Banana bread with a twist

Banana bread is not only one of the most popular recipes on internet the last years, it is a perfect way to get rid of extra ripe bananas (let’s face it, it happened to everyone). It is a great weekend breakfast or a perfect 5 o’clock snack with a cup of coffee or tea.

Of course my recipe has a twist, because there are too many for ordinary banana breads on the internet. I added chocolate chips, hazelnut powder and cinnamon and it was soooo good, we finished it in some hours!


  • 3 ripe bananas + 1 for the top

  • 1 egg

  • 150 ml milk

  • 75 gr melted butter

  • 150 gr hazelnuts (or almond) powder

  • 150 gr plain flour

  • 50 gr chocolate chips

  • 100 gr sugar

  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder

  • a pinch of salt


  • Preheat oven to 160°C (325° F, th 6)
  • Mash 3 bananas with a fork in a large bowl.
  • Add the egg, the melted butter and the milk.
  • Mix in a separate bowl the dry ingredients: hazelnuts powder, flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and sugar.
  • Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan. Bake for 45 minutes, or till a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let it cool for 15 minutes in the pan and then for 15 more minutes removed from the pan.
